Adaptive Remeshing in Abaqus/Standard

Course Logistics

Take advantage of this live online course right from your desk. Each day of the class will begin with a lecture session. After the lecture, workshop sessions are conducted offline with technical support provided by hosting office via phone and email. Some hosting offices also allow for in-person attendance.

Objective

This course provides an in-depth coverage of the Abaqus features which address adaptive remeshing for solution accuracy. Abaqus/CAE and Abaqus/Standard work together to adaptively remesh your model in response to user-specified criteria. These criteria include error indicator and mesh-size targets. Usage can be manual or fully automatic, providing options to control the way the adaptivity process is executed. This capability eliminates the mesh-related uncertainty associated with the analysis by using well-established methods for calculating solution error indicators, which in turn drive the remeshing process, ultimately providing a balance between solution accuracy and cost.

The course includes workshops and example problems to illustrate the techniques. The topics discussed include.

  • Overview and comparison of adaptivity techniques in Abaqus
  • Basics of adaptive remeshing
  • Error indicators and the associated output variables
  • Specification of adaptive remeshing rules
  • The adaptive remeshing process
  • Setting up an adaptive remeshing process
  • Issues/limitations

This course is also offered in a full-day classroom training format.

Who Should Attend

This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus.

What is Included

Electronic copies of the training notes will be provided to each registrant for their personal use. Every registrant will also receive a copy of Abaqus Student Edition. No additional Abaqus licenses will be provided, so to ensure that you can perform all the workshops fully you will need access to a licensed copy of Abaqus.
